Simply Less is More # 151

Happy New Year Everyone and I hope you all had a lovely Christmas.

I know I`ve been a terrible blogger these past few weeks and my determination to post more regularly didn`t come to much. I really don`t know where the time goes. I should make it my New Year resolution to spend much more time on the blog but I simply can`t promise I will keep to it. I will promise to do my best though.
I thought I`d start with my favourite Challenge, Simply Less is More, which has a two week window and a theme of choosing any of the past challenges.
I`ve chosen wk 151 Punches or Diecuts.

It`s the perfect time of year for Thank You cards and this design is great at any time of the year.
I made an A5 top fold card and cutout a panel slightly smaller than the base.
After rounding the corners off I ran it through the CB with a Darice EF and placed it on the card using foam pads.
The leaf is made with a Poppy stamps Lorelai die.
The daisies are made with a punch and the yellow middles by using a two hole paper punch ( just the right size).
The sentiment is by There She Goes, stamped in Versafine black ink.
A bit of tweaking of the flowers to give it some texture and there you have it.

I can`t wait til next week when everything is back to normal and I can get into some sort of routine again.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
